Abusing my CM powers, I stuck it for you

What are the best albums out at the moment? I'm off to Sharm in 4 weeks and I need to update my collection (also how much should I be paying in that over expensive tourist trap for tapes?).

well if you are looking for arabic albums

all the new releases are crap its been a while since i bought any new arabic tapes

but if u want to get an arabic one i would suggest these tapes they are not new they were released in winter of 2004 maybe a bit earlier

Amr Diab(Leily Nehary) or Nancy Ajram(Aah We Nos)

english tapes are available also and u can find anything u want

about price i think in sharm especially the price is high as in cairo any tape costs 10 LE(less than 2$) but in sharm maybe more

have a nice time

when u play with the red devils u dont change them but they change u

If the Ragheb Alama tape is "tab leh?" (sp?) then I have that (and it's good). I think I got a Mohammed Fouad tape around the same time - would that be the same one (I need to check as I have tapes lying all over the place minus covers and only Arabic written on which I have to then try and discyper with my one or two alphabet letters). The last Amr Diab album I got was "allem alby" and I have all his previous up to talmany ma'ak (sp? - you know which one I mean). And I think I have the Nancy album from last summer (same one?).

Sabry, to make you feel better, I'm not really going to Egypt, I'm going to Sharm which are two different things. I wouldn't go to tourist hellhole Sharm if there wasn't any diving. I've only been to "proper" Egypt once and I loved Cairo and cannot wait to go back.

As for price, I'm going to have enslave a couple of Egyptians at the hotel and ask them what I should be paying for tapes.

Natalya, don't buy any tapes/CDs... Arabic songs are widely available on the Internet for download. They're not illegal yet although some companies are starting to fight those websites.

Just download and burn ..

This is me we are talking about - you think I know how to download and burn songs?

Give me a step by step guide and I might be able to do it. And I'd appreciate names and titles of the songs to download while you're helping me (plus, without saying websites). Not that I'm demanding or anything

Ahh.. Sharm.. I went there a couple of times, did some snorkeling, but not really my cup of tea.

Personally, I'm not into all of this touristic stuff in Egypt.. I just miss my cousins, aunts, uncles, etc..

Sure! I'll send you a PM tonight will all the details... But, nothing comes for free. You'll have to make me CM for a day and give me authority to do anything on XT p

About that other PM, I asked my friend again last week and he said he'll look into it, but apparently he is away for a couple of days.. I highly doubt he'll have an answer for this one since its not common. I personally don't have either an Arabic or an English version, so my knowledge is limited.. Sorry

Amr Diabs last album was Leily Nehary its available every where

i see it as the best right now even with the new releases by Ragheb Alama and Mohamed Fouad

Nancy Ajram latest album was also released last summer so i guess you have bought it already check again when u go there

but seriously do you under the stand the lyrics or u just like the music coz if u understand the lyrics maybe i could suggest a new singer which is album has been released and has excellent lyrics and magnificent rythyms but sadly his voice isnt that good

when u play with the red devils u dont change them but they change u

Sadly batouty my Arabic is pathetic - I understand a few word here and there. And I keep saying every year that I'm going to take Arabic night classes to sort that out and fail miserably each time. But I'm giving myself a time limit, if I want to start my PhD in Sept. 2006 then I have to have at least basic/intermediate Arabic as I will have to Arabic for my PhD and they stick you on some evil intensive course and I don't want to start that with my Arabic as non-existent as it is now. So this Sept I have to join a class, no excuses.

Sabry, thanks for all your help recently I'll send you a Villa shirt as a thank you present

As for touristy stuff in Egypt, I loved doing all the sightseeing and I have to go back to Cairo as I didn't get to see everythig I wanted to. I want to find the Fatimid houses in the Khan al-Khalili this time (managed to miss them last time), go inside Al-Azhar (I opted for Imam Husayn Mosque last time), go back to the Pyramids and do them properly when I am not dragging annoying, uninterested and boring Iraqi around with me, go back to the Citadel which blew me away, go into Salah al-Din square and not just see if from the Citadel, go to Sakarah, go to the Coptic quarter on a day when the museum is open and see the Nag al-Hammadi texts. Also want to go to Luxor and see the temples etc. In fact, pretty much everything again

Sabry, if you go back to Sharm, forget the hotels and crap, go to Mount Sinai and St. Catherine's Monastery. Absolutely amazing. Well worth the 4 hr or so climb to the top of the mountain to see sunrise and the monestry was beautiful.

St. Catherine's

St. Catherine's Monastery from outside (the only Monastery with a Mosque inside) and the Burning Bush (and no I don't know the people who strayed into my picture)

Hey I have a song with that title . It goes something like tab leh, idi ish fil el you dish li leh ... etc

I dont speak Arabic so its fonetic and perhaps not even correct then.
